This... The 550 TI is a decent video card, but its not really ideal for a serious gamer. The 7850 Niklas gave you will net you much better performance, cutting the budget where it needs to be cut to compensate for it.

Im am not really a serious gamer i want to cut the price as much as possible, but i want to build my pc correctly and decently.. for example to support battlefield 3 mabye not in ULTRA but decently which I will be playing like 2-3 times per week .. I live in mexico and it is very hard to find some pieces in the market, and sadly newegg doesnt ship to mexico , I can get some of these pieces but for a higher price than you guys.. so I dont really know what to do.. one more question should i replace gtx 550 ti for an hd 6850?

the 6850 would be a bit better then the 550ti you can look at some benchmarks http://www.anandtech.com/show/4221/nvidias-gtx-550-ti-c...

If you could give us the parts you can get in Mexico ( we can help you get the best for your money ) you don't have to be a hardcore gamer to still have a good PC.

Also it would help to know your Monitors rez

I know the site is in spanish, if you have any language issues please tell me and i will be more than glad to translate it, or you could always use any translator, i still want a decent pc becuase i study civil engineering and sometimes i use autocad, and some other mapping/ simulation programs

Best solution

I cant read that website :)  all tho i am in Socal about 80 miles from the US / Mexico border :p 

IMO

1. a MOBO Z77 chipset With 1 PCI E 3.0 and 2 SATA 6Gb/s min

2. the i5 2500K or i5 3570K ( So you can add a CPU cooler down the road and OC to get more life out of the PC )

3. GPU 7850 ( so you can keep it longer and still get good FPS in games when you play ) Just because you don,t play every day, don't mean you have to play the game choppy when you do.

4. A GOOD QL PSU 550W ( for a single GPU ) 750W if you plan to add 2 GPUs ( a tier 1 or 2 PSU http://www.eggxpert.com/forums/thread/323050.aspx

5. 8 GB DDR3 1600 ( case you want to OC )

6. HDD 1 TB if moneys tight 500 GB ( you can pick up another down the road ) get a SATA 6.0Gb/s HDD with 7200 RPM, and 32 or 64 MB Cache ........ WD, Seagate or Samsung

7. A case that has good air flow ( i don't care what it looks like ) Just make sure it fits a ATX MOBO and good cooling.

8. DVD any 22X or 24X sata burner

9. Windows 7 64 bit OS to use more then 4 Gb of ram
